Walt Disney World has issued a finalized update for New Year’s Eve activities, plus park hours as we ring in the New Year. As previously issued, all parks and Disney Springs will close prior to midnight to allow for proper adherence to new COVID-19 guidelines, with no announced countdowns or festivities as has traditionally taken place in years prior.
